Placement Component, Lincoln Career Education Project. Annual Report 1974-75.
Lincoln City School District, NE.
The document contains three reports--annual, interim, and evaluation--on a project to organize resources for the planning and implementation of long range improvements in a comprehensive career education program. The report of the placement component describes activities which include an exiting placement program, career counseling, and the publication of a community resource catalog. Appended are a report on the exiting model, a sample from the catalog, and a 51-page supplement containing staff-developed materials to aid teachers in using the catalog. The three color-coded sections on readiness, awareness, and community resources contain activity forms and guidelines for implementation. An interim report on the project as a whole contains a project summary and an evaluation report. Focus of the evaluation was on three general concerns: project accomplishments in terms of stated objectives, implementation of career education activities, and impact on student outcomes. Evaluation instruments included standardized tests, questionnaires, and data collection. Analysis of findings showed that the project has successfully achieved or is making progress toward achieving most of the objectives, with significant increases in the number of career education activities and participating students. Appendixes (55 pages) include test and survey results and an implementation summary of activities. (Author/RG)
